"I bought this as a travel bag -- smaller than a carry-on and larger than a "shoulder bag" -- after my last flight. It fills the job well, carrying a large book, an iPad, headphones, and miscellaneous accessories in a set of well-organized compartments of various sizes. The "hidden" zipper compartment would be overlooked by most thieves. The shoulder strap has a "sticky" crescent-moon pad that stays put and the grab handle is a little small, but easy to find. Other than the ticket pocket, everything else is behind the flap or in the main zipper compartment. It might be good to have one more pocket that was easy to get to. The bag expands by means of a zipper/gusset, giving you enough extra volume for a few extra pieces of clothing. I did not find that the laptop divider took up much room. I'm a bit of a bag junkie ... always looking for the right combination of features and size. This bag is a winner. Steves has given me just enough space to take what I might need, but not so much that I would turn it into heavier luggage."

"Love the bag. I am short and the smaller size of the backpack is great for my frame. It has plenty of room, but I would really love some pockets inside. I carried my IPad, shawl, camera and lots of other stuff. The outside pocket has lots of little cubbies for smaller items like my cell, pens, plugs, ID, etc. Great bag!"

"The convertibility from backpack to shoulder bag was a key feature in my purchase decision. The description did not mention that there is a laptop sleeve, but for me this was not a drawback. Takes a while to get used to all the different storage locations. Having the outside flap makes accessing contents a bit more difficult, but is a nice security feature."

"I bought this originally intending to use it for carry on . It works ok for that, but I find myself not using it for that - the shoulder strap tends to fall off my arm unless used as a crossbody (too big for that for a small woman, but might work for a larger person). It is a great backpack. I do use it almost daily for work. I have to go between several bases spread across the city - I sometimes have to drive, sometimes the train and I often have to park miles away. I have more ID badges than a pack of cards. This keeps my ID's organized, my metro cards and rail passes, my electronics (headphones for the trip, laptop, cords, mouse, batteries etc). I leave it packed with all that stuff and it is still light enough not to hurt my back (as a backpack). Really helps me not to forget things. It is expandable, so you can throw a jacket or your lunch in there, or zip it tighter if you want a less bulky look. It is certainly on the casual-urban end of the spectrum, but it doesn't scream "I'm hiking" or anything. Have had it for a while now, and it stands up to a lot of abuse. It has a lot of ways to carry it (shoulder, crossbody, backpack and a top handle). That helps a lot if you have unpredictable or variable modes of transport. Fits under all seats on even small regional jets. Only wish the lining wasn't black."

"I bought it to use on vacation as a day bag, but quickly realized it was perfect for a small overnight business trip. I rolled up my clothes and everything I needed (as well as 2 hardcover books I was taking to loan to a friend) in it. Can't wait to use it in Ireland as a day pack. It's not too small, and not too large."

"I have not used this bag yet. I plan to use it on a trip to Alaska in June. It is well made and light weight. It looks like it would be great for organizing all the gear I need to take. It is a great looking bag. My husband thinks he will use it too sometime. The price was reasonable but of course the bag went on sale the week after I bought it."

"Have had this bag for several years. I've worn it out and tried to replace with other brands. None were as convenient and well organized as this one -- I use it every day as general handbag, to/from work, etc. and for travel(I can get so much into it that some small overhead storage is a struggle!). Just ordered a new one for a six month trip."
